The second trailer for Cats has landed and I have to admit that although I am super excited for the film regardless of what everyone is saying about the film. I found the first trailer to be better than this one though. But I guess if you haven’t seen the stage show before then it gives you a little bit about the story (although it doesn’t really have much of a story).
Roy Courtnay is a con-artist who creates business opportunities to fleece people out of money. Using an online dating website he thinks he has it made when meeting Betty McLeish. She opens up everything to him and he has second thoughts about if he can go through with taking everything’s she got.
Cineworld announced yesterday that they are doing a Secret Screening that is for everyone and not just for Unlimited card holders. Naming it Secret Screening 1, provisionally with a 15 rating this does not mean the film will actually be a 15 though it can still be U!
Date: Monday 4th November 2019
It is being shown at all cinemas except Glasgow Science City.
Date: Sunday 18th August 2019
Venue: Theatre Royal, Newcastle
As well as the trailer a lovely teaser poster has also been released!
The musical Cats was one of the longest running of all time in the West End and has countless tours over the years, as well as being on Broadway. I’ve seen the show three times over the years and do enjoy it, with the impressive dancing and memorable songs.
A film version was always going to be a little strange in a different way really as making people look and act like Cats isn’t exactly normal. I know the initial reactions to this trailer haven’t been good but I am actually rather impressed with the way they have done it. Plus we get Jennifer Hudson singing Memory and that is going to be amazing!
You are probably already aware that I am a huge fan of Sir Ian McKellen and the legendary actor turns 80 years old today! With no signs of slowing down having been in the West End last year, still starring in films and currently on an epic UK tour to celebrate turning 80! I will be heading to see it in August when he comes to Newcastle!
